DreamWorks Animation’s PUSS IN BOOTS Netflix Series Debuts January 16

I’ll be honest, when DreamWorks Animation released PUSS IN BOOTS in 2011, I wasn’t expecting much.  Instead, El Gatto surprised with an irreverent homage to swashbuckling bandito films of the past.  Now, DreamWorks Animation’s cat is back when THE ADVENTURES OF PUSS IN BOOTS Premieres on Netflix January 16, 2015.  The all-new Netflix Original Series from DreamWorks Animation blends fantasy with sly humor and brings the daring, adventurous Puss to the mysterious city of San Lorenzo.  Continue reading for more on DreamWorks Animation’s THE ADVENTURES OF PUSS IN BOOTS.

His name is legendary, his adventures and swordsmanship are renowned – just don’t distract him with a ball of yarn. He is Puss in Boots, and this January, he embarks on incredible new adventures in his unforgettably singular style in DreamWorks Animation’s THE ADVENTURES OF PUSS IN BOOTS, an all-new Netflix original TV series. The first five 22-minute episodes will be available to Netflix members in the U.S., Canada, Latin America, UK, Ireland, the Nordics, Benelux and France to watch instantly beginning Friday, January 16.

PUSS IN BOOTS

THE ADVENTURES OF PUSS IN BOOTS finds the world’s most famous feline fortune-hunter in the hidden city of San Lorenzo, a mythical land that is invisible to the outside world thanks to a magical spell that protects its quirky inhabitants – not to mention its wondrous treasure. When Puss in Boots accidentally breaks the spell, he must do more than fight off an endless legion of invaders and marauders… he must become a legend.

With a sweeping, epic visual flair and extraordinary quests in each episode, THE ADVENTURES OF PUSS IN BOOTS combines adventure and comedy with the quick-witted, nimble-footed style that is as synonymous with its hero as his namesake boots.

Its voice cast is led by Eric Bauza (The Book of Life, Turbo FAST) as Puss in Boots, along with Jayma Mays (Glee, Getting On), Laraine Newman (Saturday Night Live, Doc McStuffins) and Joshua Rush (Mr. Peabody & Sherman). Throughout the series’ first season, recurring and guest-starring voices will include Emmy Award-winning actor John Leguizamo (Chef, Ice Age), Danny Trejo (Machete, From Dusk Till Dawn), Maria Bamford (The Legend of Korra, Adventure Time), John Rhys-Davies (Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Lord of the Rings Trilogy), Robbie Rist (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, The Brady Bunch) and Jim Cummings (Shrek, Winnie the Pooh).

“Action, comedy, adventure and heart combine with a dazzling visual style to make The Adventures of Puss in Boots both unique and timeless,” said Margie Cohn, head of television for DreamWorks Animation. “Puss is a hero for the ages. With a cold glass of leche in one hand and his sword in the other, there’s nothing that could get in the way of this swashbuckling hero … except hairballs.”

Cindy Holland, Vice President of Original Content at Netflix, added, “Each episode is an exciting fantasy-adventure, which makes watching The Adventures of Puss in Boots an event the whole family will enjoy.”

In addition to the five episodes of THE ADVENTURES OF PUSS IN BOOTS that premiere on Jan. 16, new episodes will debut throughout the coming year. THE ADVENTURES OF PUSS IN BOOTS is the latest in a rapidly expanding list of original series that DreamWorks Animation is creating for Netflix. The DreamWorks Animation lineup on Netflix also includes Turbo FAST and All Hail King Julien and soon will grow to encompass a brand-new season of DreamWorks Dragons and the adventure-laden DinoTrux.​
